“Nice complex but needs serious parking help.”
Review of Von Braun Center

Von Braun Center
Ranked #9 of 79 things to do in Huntsville
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 22, 2018

The VBC itself is a pretty nice civic center. The concert hall, arena and meeting areas are all pretty decent. Where their problem lies is the parking nightmare that happens when they have multiple events scheduled. The 2 garages appear to have one entrance each so when cars back up if you are on the wrong side of the road you are not getting in! If I go for X-mas events I try to just book a room at the Embassy so I can just walk across the sky bridge.
Also if you end up having to park across the street or at North Hall and have an even at South Hall it is a pretty good hike.

What a fun place to watch hockey. The arena is so consumer friendly and everyone is so friendly. Tickets are very reasonably priced as are their concessions. They have full bar services on the concourse area and ample stands for non alcoholic beverages as well as many local
Craft beers.

We attended a performance in the Mark Smith Auditorium. The balcony seating was excellent with full and easy viewing and hearing. The staff was very accommodating for our needed handicap parking and seating.

The Von Braun Center is Huntsville's municipal arena, capable of hosting concerts, plays, special events, and minor league hockey. It is a friendly, well maintained facility located adjacent to a beautifully landscaped lake and park. For a mid-sized city, this is a very fine event center.

An ‘intimate ‘ concert experience vs. the huge stadium type. You can actually see the performers, hear the vocals and not get crushed by the crowds. Add to that a lot of very helpful staff and it’s the type place you want to go back to for the next concert.
